Oldendorff Carrier, Lübeck, has been renewing its fleet of bulk carriers since early 2019. Some 32 vessels were ordered between 2015 and 2017 from Chinese and Japanese shipyards. These included:

  • 2 x 100,000 dwt (Oshima, Japan).
  • 9 x 81,300 dwt (Hantong, China).
  • 3 x 63,000 dwt (Oshima).

  • 1 x 38, 000 dwt (Beihai, China).
  • 2 x 36,000 dwt (Samjin, China).

The latest additions to the fleet are BRITTA OLDENDORFF, a 63,000 dwt Ultramax, and DIANE OLDENDORFF, a 100,000 dwt post-Panamax vessel, both built by Oshima Shipbuilding.


Still due for delivery are 4 x 209,000 dwt vessels, due from Hantong yard in 2021, and the last three 81,000 dwt vessels from the same yard, due shortly.


Two smaller 18,000 dwt bulkers are due from the Chengxi yard in China at the turn of 2020/21.


In addition, Oldendorff has taken delivery of another 16 newbuildings from post-Panamax to Newcastlemax, on long term charter from owners, mainly on a floating rate basis.


On the second-hand tonnage market, they took one 209,000 dwt Newcastlemax and two 180,000 dwt Capers from Tata Power with attached long-term Contracts of Affreightment.
